1. The Internet accounts for 3.4 percent of overall GDP in the 13 nations studied. More than half of that impact arises from private consumption, primarily online purchases and advertising. An additional 29 percent flows from investments by private-sector companies in servers, software, and communications equipment. The Internet economy, now larger than that of Spain, surpasses global industry sectors such as agriculture and energy. 2.

Over the last five years of that period, its contribution to GDP growth in these countries doubled, to 21 percent. If we look at the 13 countries in our scope, the Internet contributed 7 percent of growth from 1995 to 2009 and 11 percent from 2004 to 2009 (exhibit).

For governments, investments in infrastructure, human capital, financial capital, and business-environment conditions will help strengthen their Internet supply ecosystems.
